Hey Guys

One of my white commercials has really gunky ears that stink really bad.

It doesn't seem to affect her any. She's still laying eggs everyday & eating & all that but for so e reason she's picked up some sort of yucky ear bug/infection.

Totally gross as it stinks mega bad.

I'm not sure how to treat this.

Any suggestions?

Cheers
Chicka-Dee

Yeah, I was hoping someone on the forum might have an idea without me having to visit the Vet

You mean like Oxymav B? :?:

I've got some of that but never thought of giving her that to help with her ears. :shock:

I thought I might have to get some sort of ear drops. conf665

Have you had a chicken with infected ears too Cordelia?

Oh Cool [smilie=a_goodjobson.gif]

Thanks for the help Cordelia.

Knew someone on the forum would have come across this problem before. th_clap.gif

I ended up soaking the crusty stuff off her ears & then getting an ear bud and getting the gross smelly white cheesy stuff out of her ears. So far it hasn't come back but I needed some help just in case it comes back.

Thanks again

Cheers
